Re: One more quick plug for reducing "Clarify Selection" dialogs
That’s odd. Did you try it with your mouse pointer directly over the corner? (You may need a reasonably thick track for this to happen. Try something on the order of 2mm.)
Without my change the selection disambiguation is run *before* we know it’s a drag action on a simple corner, so the selection_tool thinks it needs to know which of the two segments is to be selected.
